Hello, I tried to use "Interval Timer Shooting" while using an old Nikkor lens (which required the use of the "M" or "Manual" mode.) The "Interval Timer Shooting" in the menu system was grayed-out. Is this normal? Thank you. --RUcrAZ

Hi all, Sorry - new to the forum, so apologies if this is the wrong place to ask the question. I've just taken possession of a new D7100, which is fantastic, however I don't seem to be able to change the f-stop? I've tried two lenses (both standard dx f mount, which both worked perfectly with my old D5100), but on both manual, and aperture priority I get nothing when I use the wheel. Has anyone had this "problem" or is it just some strange setting I'm not able to find? Thanks, steve

Hi, I've recently noticed that this lens makes a short sharp 'ping' kinda noise when it focuses (when the focus points inside the viewfinder light up momentarily indicating set focus). Do other owners hear the same pings when they are focusing?Or is something wrong with my lens?

Does Nikon D5100 apply sharpening to NEF files or just to JPG files? I assume sharp is only applied to JPG and not NEF files. I almost always use Landscape picture control and it lists a sharpening of 4. When opening NEF file in ViewNX2 the sharp slider is always at zero. Does this mean that the sharp setting in Nikon D5100 is not applied to NEF file in camera? I am trying to figure out if I should apply sharpness to my NEF files in ViewNX2. Thanks for your help.

Hey all, Just wanted to check to see if anyone has experience or knows if there are any potential issues with an older Sigma 50-150mm HSM lens working with the D5100 or D7100. I stumbled across this article here, which is referring to the D5100, and was concerned because I have a potential buyer interested but he's asking questions about it: http://www.dpreview.com/articles/2157462715/sigma-issues-advisory-on-lens-compatibility-with-nikon-d5300 Thanks!

Hello, I use a Nikon 16-85mm on a D5100 and a D5500, and it's time to place a "protective filter" in front of that lens, preferably a UV to "cut haze" a bit. One of my concerns is that it does not cause significant (or none) "vignetting" when that lens is at ts full wide angle. (A lesser issue is that, ideally - but not a "dealbreaker" - the filter should have front threads, so that occasionally I can use an available circular-polarizer filter, without having to remove the UV filter.) The...

Ok so I have had a Nikon D5100 for a couple of years but I have just upgraded to a 18-140 lens. Real nice lens, been taking some great photos. However I have been trying to take close(r) ups of that fine example our great Merseyside wildlife - the seagull!. Using standard metering the white body of the seagull always overexposes so I have been trying using spot metering.  However the white body still looks overexposed and washed out, even though the overall picture is a lot darker.  Now I am...

hy guys.Just wanted a quick opinion from you.I now own a nikon d5100 and 35mm, 90mm macro from tamron and nikon 55-200mm vr  and I need a wide angle lens .i must say that i don't use wide angle that much most of my shooting being with the fixed primes. My questions is should I buy the simple nikon kit lens as it is wide enough and I can get for 80 bucks and invest in some good filters like ND and polarizers as they are quite affordable and will suit my 35 and my my 55-200 52mm filter thread...

Hey, The external flash is on the camera.When the flash is on - it fires.There are situations where I shoot many photos fast, some with flash, and some without flash.So I want a quick and simple method to enable/disable the flash.Currently I only see the way is to turn on and off the external flash - takes a few seconds, and also the flash does some unnecessary actions for this.Can I disable the flash without turning it off completely with its on/off button (so I can also enable it quickly...

Hi, im from kolkata, and will be buying my first DSLR this saturday. However i have some queries, and after reading up endless reviews on google and youtube i couldnt find any good answers. The thing is that, i will start with an entry level DSLR, because my budget isnt very high. After reading reviews i had singled out Nikon D3200 (Rs21,000), D3300 (25,000) and D5100 (24,000). The reason i didnt go for canon is because 1) the ones that will be within my budget are 1100D and 1200D and the...
